    I'll bet no one goes to jail. This is just a tax in disguise. As long as a criminal gives the SEC a reasonable cut, they never get prosecuted.

    Why are they not named?
    I thought such insider trading is a criminal offense, so why are the being sued, instead of arrested?

     

    Maybe we'll all have to get it from Wikileaks.

    Wimm-Bill Dann is a Russian firm - I find it hard to believe there is any corruption or insider trading over there?
